What is a “Yummly login” and how do I know if I have one?
When we first launched in 2010, people could register for a Yummly account using their email address and a password. If you log in to Yummly using an email address and password combination, that is a “Yummly login”.
Why is Yummly moving to third party registration?
We'll be moving Yummly registration to Facebook, Google, and other third party registration methods. This change will make it easy to save and share your favorite recipes with one less user id and password to remember, and lets us focus on improving the core Yummly experience.
What are the benefits of switching?
By switching, you will continue to be able to store your taste preferences, maintain your profile, and more on Yummly without another account/password. If you sign up via Facebook, you will be able to share the recipes you “yum” and cook with your Facebook friends and family.
When I switch will I lose all my recipes and preferences?
No, the only thing that will change on your account is how you access your account. All preferences, recipes and account information will stay the same.
When will 3rd party registration methods be available?
Facebook is available now; Google and other registration methods will be available shortly thereafter.
By using Facebook, what permissions does Yummly require?
These are the Facebook permission windows you will see when you click to use Facebook to log in:
You can also control what gets posted to Facebook from Yummly by making changes to your Yummly account preference. Learn more.
I don’t have a Facebook account, what do I do?
Don’t worry! Go to Facebook and create an account (it’s free).
Once your account is set up, come back to Yummly
If you used the same email address for Facebook and Yummly:
Simply click the Log in with Facebook button and follow the prompts
If you used a different email address for Facebook and Yummly:
Log in to Yummly using your original email address and password you have always used.
When you see the message to Log in with Facebook, do so!
Follow the prompts and you are all set!
If I don’t switch to Facebook and other registration methods, what happens to all my preferences, recipes, menus and more?
When we completely switch the Yummly login to third party registration methods, you will no longer be able to log in to Yummly and use the features that come with having a Yummly account. You will only be able to log in using other third party registration methods. You may continue to use Yummly to search for recipes - that will always be available without creating an account!
